Micro Ice 2022-2023 Teams

The 2022-23 season will be one of the biggest in Micro Ice history!  We are extremely proud that our growth has been the result of our tremendously popular learn to skate, learn to play and our mite development programs as well as our superior year-round hockey/skating skills clinics, and a near-perfect retention rate of team players. As such, we will have very few open spots on our Ice Dogs teams next year and we expect significant interest in those spots.

We emphasize game like situations with maximum pace, repetitions and puck touches to accelerate player development. Our goalies can easily face more than 300+ shots per practice and included in our goalie tuition are GDS Elite Goaltending private lessons, who are located in our building. 

Player identification and tryout opportunities will take place in March 2022. To receive priority consideration and to be added to our list for player identification and tryout opportunities, please complete our Prospective Player Form.

To quote Kurt Russell as Herb Brooks in the movie Miracle, we’re not looking for the best players, we’re looking for the right ones. The right players for our program prioritize learning, sportsmanship and fun above all else. The right players for our program believe in long term development, effort and accountability. Our measurement of success is not to just grow good hockey players but rather to help grow respectful, hard-working, collaborative and confident young adults. If you have any questions, please email tryouts@microicehockey.com. Thank you.

Tournament Play: All teams are also eligible for play in local and/or travel tournaments. Tournaments are a great opportunity for our teams to play additional competitive games and bond as a group and community. Typically team families determine which tournament(s) they wish to participate in themselves and costs of tournaments and any travel are born by the families.
